Put me down at the top of the list...BLEECH.

Here's one that is as good as any in terms of beating this DEAD horse.

How about you? Where do you stand on this matter of extreme importance?

LOL. I'll have to read that thread a bit later, too busy this afternoon. I don't feel strongly about BTW, but it's grown on me. I think it's a decent song. I think this is more anti-Bobby prejudice ...

Yep; I with Miss D (as always of course) in that I think it's a good (bad) example of the poor end of the Barlow/Weir writing attempts with a bit too much over the top sentimentality, etc., etc. Completely biased, of course, by my love for the more esoteric/cerebral Hunter style, but think B&W have some others that are much better.

oh then you just mean the lyrics? I guess so; not sure I've really even listened to them, something about you're not the woman I once thought I met blah blah.

Definitely not anti-Bobby in my case. The song just doesn't do much for me. Bobby songs that era (or earlier) that do work for me. I am sure I am forgetting a few, just doing this off the top of my head:

PITB
WRS>LIG
TOO
Jack Straw (originally just Bob singing but better with Jerry playing the part of Shannon)
Truckin'
Sugar Magnolia
Mexicali (what's wrong with a little polka now and again?)

Bobby covers that work:
El Paso
Some Dark Hollow (acoustic and electric perfection)
Minglewood (listen to him roar on 4-29-71!)
MAMU (actually i like the song, it was overplayed)
BIODTL
Big River (ditto the MAMU issue)
The Promised Land (ditto)

Not so much:
BTW
LLR (i think i like this one better than BTW, the lyrics get sappy but the music is good)
Around and Around

I love Bobby, just don't like that song.
